“With bold, tropical colors, salsa sounds, and refreshing voiceovers from Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway and more, Rio is pure, light hearted fun.” – Mark Sells, Film Threat
From the creators of the popular Ice Age series comes Rio, a colorfully comical animated adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda (Leslie Mann) in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu’s female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had. Also featuring the voices of Jamie Foxx, Wanda Sykes, Rodrigo Santoro, Will.i.am. and Jane Lynch. (Dir. by Carlos Saldanha, 2011, USA, 96 mins., Rated G)
